Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burficts latest brush with the on-field law may or may not result in a suspension.

But his coach isnt thrilled with the actions which led to Burficts first career ejection.

Burfict didnt talk to reporters after the game, but Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said hes talked to Burfict about such outbursts.

He knows better. We pay a price, we pay a price because he hurts us when its on the field that way, and then hes not on the field, so both ways.

The ejection for unsportsmanlike conduct came two plays after he was flagged for unnecessary roughness, after hitting running back DeMarco Murray out of bounds. Burficts contact there wasnt egregious (by his standards), but his track record means he gets a closer look from officials.
